SNODGANISTAN: Population of 5 (Abigail, Quinton, Olive, Eli and Bean).
We began rehabbing our 1908 Bungalow back in April 2012. Before it was ‘ours’ it was previously home to a family for 71 years with the original woodwork and an amazing amount of charm. Although the house had not received many updates through the years—with an old fuse box, old plumbing, a bathroom that was updated in the 50’s with plastic tile, and foundation damage—we saw the potential!
Once we staked our claim in April we quickly began working and continue to tick away at our task list, whether it is the kitchen, basement, Olive’s room, Eli’s room, or the electric, plumbing or several tasks that are important behind the scenes non-sexy tasks. In addition to working on our house we recently welcomed the addition of ‘Duckie’ our 1988 Serro Scotty Sportsman trailer. We’ve started to share our adventures with this lil gal here.
Q is a fundraiser for a national non-profit, while I run a design studio assisting non-profits with their various marketing goals. Olive hasn’t made any decisions, but shows potential in dancing, singing, and laughing. Eli has blown us away with his sleeping skills and ability be mellow. Finally Bean is a professional dog sleeper, excelling at letting people know when they are not petting her enough.
